All people who use Smartphones would agree that the batteries are terrible. It is fact that the battery lasts barely one entire day. But, as some experts explain, that partially is your fault.
Majority people leave the Smartphones to charge overnight.
Namely, many people are convinced that it’s the best time as we certainly don’t need the Smartphones while we sleep and the next day we don’t have to worry if the battery running out. But that is the FIRST MISTAKE we do!
THIS is how to charge your Smartphone properly:
Don’t keep it plugged in when it’s fully charged
As Battery University explains, by leaving your phone plugged even if it is fully charged, like overnight, it is really bad for the battery in the long run.
At the moment when the smartphone has reached 100% charge, it gets “trickle charges” to keep it at 100% while plugged in. That keeps the battery in a high-stress, high-tension state, which actually wears down the chemistry within.
Battery University has detailed scientific explanation why, and they summarize that: “When fully charged, remove the battery” from its charging device. “This is like relaxing the muscles after strenuous exercise”.
It’s best if you don’t charge your Smartphone to 100%
If actually don’t REALLY need your Smartphone to be 100% charged. Instead, it is much better to maintain the battery around 10 to 80%
Plug in your phone whenever you can
As experts explain, the batteries in the smartphones are “much happier” if you charge it occasionally throughout the day instead of plugging it in for a big charging session when it is completely empty.
According to Battery University it is the best-case scenario to charge your phone when it loses 10% of its charge. That apparently is not much practical for most people, so simply plug in your smartphone whenever you can. It’s completely fine to plug and unplug it few times a day.
This will keep your smartphone’s battery performing optimally for longer, but in same time that will keep it topped up throughout the day.
In addition to that, with periodic top-ups you can use features you might not normally use as they hog your battery life, such as location-based features that utilize your smartphone’s GPS antenna.
Be careful of overheating the Smartphone!
In case you notice that the battery of your Smartphone is getting a little bit “excited” it is recommended to take off the mask. Any time you are outside make sure your Smartphone is not exposed on sunlight and keep it covered. On that way you will keep your battery protected.
The Smartphones can be of great help but only if you know how to use them properly, and NOT be their slaves. It is crucial to take a smarter care for your Smartphone.
